The original Snub-Nose?

I came across these interesting pictures today, of what appears to be a 44 CAL Confederate copy of a 1851 Colt Navy.

I don’t know the origins of the pictures, or the history of the gun, but I can only imagine what the intended purpose of the modified gun was. Reloading it didn’t seem too much of a concern, as the ramrod assembly was completely removed.

    I made that gun a long time ago. That was the first “Avenging Angel” I ever made. I have made several more since and am much better at it now.

    • Erik, thanks for the comment. Can you tell me a bit more about the gun? Do you have any pictures you want to share?
      Thanks! Dan
